EastEnders star Kellie Bright, 44, pregnant with third child after ‘roller coaster’ IVF journey


EASTENDERS star Kellie Bright is pregnant again aged 44.

The star, who plays Linda Carter in the soap, is having a third child with husband Paul Stocker after what she called a ‘rollercoaster’ IVF journey.

Kellie and husband Paul Stocker, seen here in 2017, are having another child

She and husband Paul Stocker, 38, already have children Freddy, nine, and Gene, four.

Kellie welcomed her first son naturally aged 34 before having IVF in her second pregnancy.

After Gene was born, Kellie stored three extra embryos. After failed pregnancy attempts with two of them, the third and final embryo became the couple’s third child.

Kellie told OK! magazine: “The first two embryos didn’t work. So this baby inside me now was the last one we had – the last chance of a pregnancy, because at 44 we were not going through IVF again.

The actress, 44, is best known for playing Linda Carter in the BBC’s EastEnders

“I believe it was meant to be. But those three months, between September and November, were a real roller-coaster.”
